Testing of Chandrayaan-3 completed, will be launched on July 13
Testing of India’s third mission to the moon, Chandrayaan-3, has been completed and this mission is to be launched on 13 July. ISRO Chairman S Somnath has informed the press that the agency has completed the testing of the spacecraft.
Now this spacecraft has been fully integrated. He told that the craft has been mated with the rocket compartment. Somnath told that the time to launch Chandrayaan-3 is the week between July 12 and July 18.
India’s space agency said that the launch is set to launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota on July 13 at 2:30 pm. Chandrayaan-3 launch vehicle will be launched with the help of Mark 3 rocket which was also used in the previous mission.
Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft consists of three modules – propulsion module, a lander and a rover. The propulsion module will take the landing module and the rover from launch injection to the final lunar 100 km circular polar orbit.
After this it will use the second scientific module. The lander module will make a soft landing on the moon, where Chandrayaan-2 failed. After landing, the lander will deploy the rover. Lander and Rover have payloads with the help of which experiments will be done.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission has three objectives – the first is to make a safe and soft landing on the lunar surface; second, to see that the rover is roving correctly on the Moon; And third, to conduct in-situ scientific experiments.
LVM3, formerly known as Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark 3, will be used to launch the Chandrayaan-3 mission. Chandrayaan-3 will be the second mission in which this rocket will be used. Chandrayaan-1 was sent into space by PSLV XL rocket.
LVM3 is a three-stage rocket with a length of 43.43 meters and a mass of 640,000 kg. This launch vehicle can carry 4000 kg payload up to Geostationary Transfer Orbit. In its three stages, two rocket boosters have been installed on the side along with the main rocket.
Each booster carries 207 tonnes of HTPB based propellant which generates a maximum thrust of 5150kN. Two liquid fueled Vikas-2 rocket engines have been given in the second stage, which is made from the combination of UDMH and nitrogen tetroxide.
